Between 1.73.2 and 1.74.0, the manpages have ceased to work on Solaris or even on a slightly old Linux installation. I'm using Solaris 10 and SuSE ES9 which has groff 1.17.2.
On Solaris, I get only the header and footer lines. Removing the toupper and SH-xref macros basically fixes it but I still get FC and F surrounding some items that were marked <literal> or <email> in the Docbook source.
The FC/F problem also occurs with the old Linux machine.
On a recent Debian Linux machine (groff 1.18.1), the man page looks fine. No formatting is applied to the <literal> elements and the e-mail address no longer has angle brackets around it as with 1.73.2.
